Happy Fridays m’dears! Will you not agree with me that Fridays have become sort of the “dump day” of blogland? Of course this is a generalization, but lots of us just kind of throw something up as an afterthought as we’re busy counting down the hours ’til the weekend! Many, many, many blogs I read feature their sponsors on Friday. Sweet and all, but I for one, rarely (if ever) read sponsor posts. For over a year I’ve posted “Friday’s Foto Felicity”s because a) I really love taking photos of nature and b) really love posting inspirational quotes, but it was also a way to not have to do much work on this common low-traffic blogging day. -
But I’ve been inspired (perhaps because of the New Year?) to give something new a try on Fridays! I want to finish the week off with a bang and share some outfit posts, along with a few of my very favorite inspirational/helpful reads in blogland from the previous week with you. They are ALL worth a few minutes of your time – I promise!
So…the new face for Fridays?

*Speaking of fashion, you just might be seeing more of that around these parts…there’s a new series brewing in my brain…
But let’s get to it, shall we?
The outfit for this week features a color that I’m typically not very fond of: purple. But when I saw this cashmere beauty at the JCrew Sample Sale (for $20!), I was drawn to its cozy warmth, and rich amethyst hue. Surprisingly, it works really well with lots of the more neutral colors in my wardrobe. It’s a keeper!
